April 2020. Due to the coronavirus, lockdown measures are in place for cultural institutions and exhibition spaces.
On Saturday 25th April starting at 8 in the morning, balloons ascended into the sky of Berlin every 20 minutes. Attached to each balloon was a piece of paper carrying a thought, sketch, photograph or poem from artists, writers, curators and thinkers. They were released into the world like messages in a bottle.
The original works have been scattered around Berlin and Brandenburg.
The event was shared live on Instagram from @airborne_project.
The individual contributions can be viewed on this website.
A pdf of all of the contributions can be downloaded here.
